There was more to see at St. Vrain State Park than reflections. Of course bird watching is always rich with all that water around. At first I thought this might be an otter or muskrat. What do you think?
As we walked a little further it went underwater. When it appeared again we were looking at a cormorant. It had been looking underwater for something to eat. You could have fooled me at first glance.
We also saw pelicans.
As we walked around Bald Eagle Pond, we thought we might be looking at eagles.
But nearby there was a nest platform. When I checked it out with my zoom lens I realized it was an osprey nest.
On the far side of the park, we saw some old abandoned ranch buildings.
It was a great place to spend a few days.
